Right, make-kpkg doesn't actually install the package, it just builds
it. (This is useful if you want to build packages for a slower
machine on a faster one, for example.) Run 'dpkg --install
../kernel-image-2.4.18_*.deb' from the kernel source tree as root.
...but then, this doesn't affect the kernel-source package; in
"normal" usage, you really aren't having kernel-package generate the
kernel-source package at all, since you either want to use a plain
tarball from kernel.org (or a mirror) or the normal Debian package.
What are you actually trying to do, what have you done so far, what
issues are you running into?
